Talking Italian Firefighters

One night in the small town of Garfield , NJ, a fire started inside the local
sausage factory. In a blink the building was engulfed in flames. The alarm
went out to all the fire departments for miles around.

When the first volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the sausage
company president, Giorgio Tiracazzo, rushed to the fire chief and said,
"All of our secret sausage recipes are in the vault in the center of the plant.

They must be saved. I will donate $50,000 to the fire department that
brings them out and delivers them to me ."

But the roaring flames held the firefighters off. Soon more fire departments
had to be called in because the situation became desperate. As the firemen
arrived, the president, Mr. Tiracazzo, shouted out that the offer to extricate
the secret recipes was now $100,000 to the fire department that could save


Suddenly from up the road, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck

came into sight. It was the fire engine of the nearby Lodi , NJ volunteer fire

department composed mainly of Italian firefighters over the age of 65.

To everyone's amazement, the little run-down fire engine, operated by these

Italian firefighters, passed fire engines parked outside the plant, and drove

straight into the middle of the inferno. Outside, the other firemen watched in

amazement as the Italian old timers jumped off and began to fight the fire

with a performance that was as if they were fighting to save their own lives.

Within a short time, the Lodi old timers had extinguished the fire and saved

the secret recipes.

The grateful sausage company president, Mr. Tiracazzo, joyfully announced

that for such a superhuman accomplishment he was upping the reward to

$200,000, and walked over to personally thank each of the brave elderly

Italian firefighters.

A TV news crew rushed in after capturing the event on film.

The 'on camera' reporter asked the Italian fire chief, "What are you going

to do with all that money?"

"Wella," said Chief Pasquale Di Bagnato, the 70-year-old fire chief, "de

fursta tinga we gonnna do isza fixa uppa de brakes on dat fockinna truck!!"
